BY WOMEN, FOR WOMEN
They’re service members, family members, caregivers, and so much more. We’re celebrating women who give their all, so they can turn their dreams into reality.
The PVA Women Veterans Empowerment Retreat (formerly WE Served) is an all-expenses-paid retreat that focuses on the holistic well-being of women veterans with disabilities. This immersive and outcomes-driven experience – limited to just 40 attendees – will empower these women to navigate the unique challenges of their everyday lives … and flourish.
Participants will enjoy four days of learning and community-building in an inclusive and supportive environment. PVA will assemble a line-up of experts and thought leaders to present education on topics including:
- Benefits of Volunteering
- Comprehensive Wellness
- Education as a Path Forward
- Food Is Fuel
- PVA's Employment Program
- Stress Management: Change, Coping, and Adaptation
- Take Charge! Healthcare Decision Making
- Women and Money: Taking Control of Your Financial Future
Women veterans with disabilities will leave this event with the information and tools they need to be UnstoppABLE at home, at work, and in life.
Registration will open June 1, 2020.
The webinars will cover issues specific to our female veteran population – from current healthcare concerns, to general health and wellness topics, as well as advocacy and legislation updates on how PVA is working to address the specific needs of women veterans.
